BLOCK 12 of Blanket MKAL 2021

Hello,

I’m sorry to be uploading this one day later than it should, but yesterday I had a vet emergency (it was scary but thankfully my dog is fine).

Block 12 is the last one of this series! Nevertheless, next Friday I’ll share with you the instructions for the hat and the cowl scarf that complete the project 😀

I hope you’ve enjoyed this MKAL!!

In this block you will find some things already presented in previous blocks, like LOOP and Hachi Twists, but also something new: BOBBLES.
The BOBBLES worked here are different from the popcorns you might have worked in my Popcorn hat: they are smaller and don’t need to be worked over several rows. But, make sure to read the instructions carefully! If you don’t “close” the bobble in the following row you’ll end up with more stitches than you should 😉
Alternatively, you can decide not to work the bobbles and just knit that stitch as shown in the following photo. Or make some here and there… It’s up to you!

On Block 8 of this year’s project I introduce a very nice technique I call the DOUBLE LOOP. I created a step-by-step photo guide to show it in detail (you can find it HERE) but let me tell you 2 reasons why I love those double loops:

  • they’re very easy to make
  • you end up with an element that looks very similar to a cable but it’s faster to do, and… no cable needle needed! Perfect for commuter knitters 😂

You’ll also find in this block the Front version of the Hachi Twist. If you don’t remember how to make it, take a look at this post.

Ok, let’s go the pattern for…

HOW TO MAKE A DOUBLE LOOP

In Block 2 (and some others) of my Blanket MKAL 2021 used the LOOP I explained in the short post “How to make the LOOP in Block 2“. Today’s Block 8 features what I call a DOUBLE LOOP and I wanted to share a detailed explanation on how to do it 🙂 Don’t worry, it’s very easy! Let’s get to it.

BLOCK 4 of Blanket MKAL 2021

Hello! There are 2 things very important I want you to notice before starting:

  • you’ll need to increase 4 sts instead of 3 for this one (and decrease them after).
  • in this block, pattern repeats are a bit different from each other. You should follow the instructions in the right order: BLOCK N°4 A, BLOCK N°4 B and BLOCK N°4 C, either written or charted.

Both are written clearly below, but just in case you’re prone to gloss over instructions that look familiar… 😉

Happy knitting! xo

PS: can you see where I made a mistake knitting my block?
